Your two-part dress is fabulous and you look gorgeous. Congratulations.

Are you going to make more dresses in the style of the black dress but in other colours to wear the comic book skirt over?

That's a much more attractive boot jack than the awful plastic ones for sale these days. DH made me a new timber one last winter because I've misplaced my original one in one of our moves <sigh>. My first one was a very attractive timber one.

I have tea light candles sitting in abalone shells.

I have filled the lids of recycled coffee jars (see here: http://www.moccona.com.au/public/products/classic-range/classic-dark-roast.aspx) with small shells because they look pretty. The jars hold a variety of things e.g. cotton balls, buds.

Shells with holes in them hang off earring hooks & hook up the lace curtains so the bottoms hang in scallops.

Plain shot glasses fit nicely into odd corners & look attractive filled with shells.

On a recent home dec show a wire bird cage was turned into a light shade. I hope the following makes sense.

The bottom was cut off the cage just above the last wire running horizontally at the bottom. The wires running from top to bottom (vertically) were left long, these were then coiled up to to make cute curlicues at the bottom of the shade which is now the next horizontal wire up.

Congratulations on your pregnancy.

Thanks for posting the tute . . . I really appreciate the photos.

I'm not pregnant but I have gained some extra pounds and your tute is very timely.

Something simple and full, with pockets if possible, would be ideal!

One of the most useful items I have are what I call wearable pockets. See here: http://www.dandavats.com/wp-content/uploads/brownhipsack.jpg]

They're easy to make & you can customise the pockets for your particular needs. Mine are permanently filled with all the bits & pieces I need throughout my work day. I take them off in the evening & put them back on in the morning. The most convenient thing is I don't have to transfer anything from one garment to the next.

Mine last about six months because of what I carry in them but they're so convenient I don't care. I used to reuse the hardware from one set to the next but my current set do up in front with what must be industrial strength hook & loop tape (that's 5 cm/2" wide) because these pockets lug a mass of just over 1.5 kg and the hook & loop tape hasn't failed yet.

Your aprons are very attractive. Nice job.
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Blue wrap dress own pattern :-) on: July 15, 2012 11:05:32 PM
I'm not wearing to work a lot, I work with children and feel a bit overdressed when I do wear it to school!

Congratulations! That's a very stylish garment & I love the ribbon trim. It's the perfect garment for dressing up for going out - white shirt & pearls with heels, or dressing down for work - perhaps a red plaid or checked shirt with coloured tights & boots.

Congratulations! That's a very attractive garment. I love the fabric colours & design. I too love ponchos & their various styles. (I made one from a plain coloured wool travel rug & it's so cosy.)

Checkers board in one place, 9 tiles to play tic tac toe in another place perhaps.

I look forward to hearing about the games you end up with. Your yard will be so much fun.

Best wishes.
